Although my passion for animals and wildlife photography developed from a very age, I didn’t own my first real camera until I was 27, then another 20 years would pass before I finally found the opportunity to pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a professional wildlife photographer.
While cats are my favourite subjects, my portfolio is made up of a wide diversity of animals I have been fortunate enough to encounter and work with in zoos, wildlife parks, as well as in the wild during numerous photography trips around Thailand, Malaysia, Borneo, England, South Africa, Madagascar, and Kenya.
My images have been featured around the world in both printed and online media, I write articles about my photography for Thai and UK magazines, and I have conducted wildlife photography workshops for Canon Marketing, Thailand.
Oh, and my picture “The Explosion!” was awarded first place in the Nature Category as well as the overall Grand Prize for the 2012 National Geographic Photo Contest, the same picture you see featured as my cover photo above, in case you are not familiar with it.
